Seiko 4R36 Shrouded Divers aka Seiko Scallop

Thong Sia released a limited edition Seiko Scallop with green dial in June 2017. It is nice that they have introduced a limited edition model, just like what the distributor in Thailand has been doing. Thong Sia’s limited edition Scallop is called the Green Sea Turtle and it is the seventh variant of the Seiko Scallop family. Aside from the SRPA47J that was released in Thailand, the rest of the six variants are sold here in Singapore. The Scallop is a 200m diver that has a steel case shrouded by a ceramic shroud.

Seiko 4R35 Cocktail Time – SRPB47J

I bought this Seiko Cocktail Time and thought it would be nice to do a blog post on it and its predecessor, the SARB065.

The Cocktail Time models were first introduced in the Japan domestic market and came with the 6R15 movement. They were offered under the Mechanical line with the most popular model being the SARB065. The 6R Cocktail Time models were however discontinued and new 4R based models were announced during Basel World 2017. These 4R Cocktail Time models have a similar design as their 6R predecessors but are powered by the 4R35 and 4R57 movements. They are no longer JDM models and are sold worldwide under the Presage line.
